     17== DHCP configuration ==
     18
     19For PXE booting you will need to install a DHCP server. On our site we use the isc DHCP server. The configuration here below shows an example on how to configure the pxeboot functionality on your network.
     20
     21{{{
     22# define the option
     23option sali-imgsrv code 224 = ip-address;
     24
     25# Admin network
     26#
     27subnet 192.168.144.0 netmask 255.255.248.0 {
     28  # The value for sali-imgsrv has to be an ip address
     29  option sali-imgsrv 192.168.146.10;
     30  next-server 192.168.146.10;
     31  filename "pxelinux.0";
     32}
     33}}}
     34
     35Optional you can specify a special dhcp option that SALI uses to identify which imageserver must be used. We have chosen for option code 224.

     40Make sure that the your PXE-enabled network card is your first boot device. So you will have complete control of your node.

     50Copy the following files from the extracted tar.gz to your tftp directory. Depending on your operating systems this can be ```/srv/tftpboot, /var/lib/tftboot```. In our examples we shall use ```/data/tftp```
     51{{{
     52# cd /data/tftp
     53# mkdir sali
     54# cd sali/
     55# cp -a /var/tmp/sali-1.5.8/x86_64 .
